I came across this neat little concoction and thought it was a much better alternative than store bought medications. Maybe you can give it a shot too. I know the change in season can sometimes bring colds and so with winter coming up it might be nice to share this one out there.
This is going to become a tea by the end of it but it starts out by combining some ingredients together and setting in the fridge. Let’s get to the recipe!
How To Make It
Start out with a mason jar or some other type of glass jar. I like to use organic ingredients as often as I can so if you can, use it for this as well. Cut up enough lemon into slices so that it fills roughly half to three-quarters of the jar you are preparing. Add in several slices of ginger to the mix. I imagine this could be done to taste as some like a lot of ginger and others like a little. Feel free to experiment with the amount. Lastly fill the remainder of the jar with organic honey. Be sure to use a good quality honey as a lot of honey sold these days is not even honey! You can read more about that here. Once you are done, close up the jar and put it into the fridge until it forms into a jelly.
When you want to use the mixture, boil some water, put about a teaspoon of the jelly into a mug. Add the water and then grab a good book, your pet or a blanket and settle down beside a fireplace and enjoy. If you don’t have the ability to be by a fireplace, then you might as well dump it down the drain until you do. (Kidding) But seriously, fireplaces in the winter with this would be unreal. ENJOY!
Note: I am not huge into canning so I don’t know how long this can store in the fridge for, but be sure to keep an eye on it after 2-3 months.

We know so much about food now yet much of the population is overweight and unhealthy because of the quality of our food and our perception about food.
